I’ve Done It!

Posted by Shannon Haddock on June 9, 2017 in Crown of Eldrete, Writing process |

The Crown of Eldrete is, so far as I can tell, now removed from all ebook markets.  The print edition still exists because it’s more tricky than just clicking a button or two to remove a print edition from Amazon/Createspace, but since as far as I can tell Mom is the only person who ever […]

This was supposed to be an excerpt from The Crown of Eldrete

Posted by Shannon Haddock on February 7, 2017 in Crown of Eldrete, Rants, Writing process |

(WARNING:  I HAD CAFFEINATED TEA WHILE WRITING THIS AND THIS GOT REALLY FUCKING RAMBLY IN PLACES BECAUSE OF THIS.) The problem is, to find an excerpt to post I had to re-read it. I found half a scene I liked enough to share with the world. Yeah, that’s in a book I’ve published. And here’s where I relate […]

Why my characters swear so damned much

(The title is the first way I thought of titling this post and was too perfect to not use.) I’d never really thought about how much swearing there is in my books until it was pointed out in a review.  The review said that Lyndsey “likes to swear”.  This struck me as an odd statement.  I […]

Why Crown of Eldrete may never get its sequel

Posted by Shannon Haddock on September 11, 2015 in Crown of Eldrete, Writing process |

First, I apologize to anyone who liked the book and was anticipating the sequel, but I really think it might never happen.  What might — and I have to emphasize might — happen is a rewrite telling the whole story from Lyn meeting Taliza to them kicking the combined Neo-Imperialist and Krishodi forces out of that bit […]
